Yang had been dating his
girlfriend, Lily, for years.
Now, he did still love his
girlfriend, but he wished to reserve his own private space instead of
exposing all of himself to his girlfriend. And his girlfriend, who was a
sharp girl, was recently aware that he had kept her at arm’s length.
One day, Yang was
absent-mindedly dating with his girlfriend in McDonald’s.
Eating her hamburger, the
girlfriend fixed her eyes on Yang’s. “I have discovered that you are
really dishonest,” said the girl.
Yang pretended to be
composed and started glancing around furtively.
“Are you talking about the
bearded man beside me or the short man with a copper nose behind me?”
asked Yang mystically.
“It’s none of any other
person’s business. I’m just talking about you!” answered the girl angrily,
chewing the last bite of her hamburger.
“Me? ____” Yang choked on
his words, “What’s happening to me?”
“You are NOT honest, nor is
anyone else in your gang,” said the girl seriously.
“I think you misunderstand
my friends. As you know we all like to chat about things of nonsense.
Don’t bother with those,” Yang remained calm.
“Stop playing with me
again! Your gang are all liars. The lies rush out without being thought as
soon as you guys open your mouths. But the worst thing is that you always
consider I’m a simple girl to believe your lies,” the girl screamed.
“W-h-a-t’s going on here?”
asked Yang. “It has been planned that we go to eat a nice and delicious
French meal for dinner today, but____ Well, it’s my fault, my fault.”
Yang was a little confused
and thought that his girlfriend must have something wrong with her. He
realized that it was better for him to make an apology to her as soon as
possible despite the fact that he did not really know what kind of fault
in the world he had made so far.
“Where is your cell phone?
Let me have it for a while,” said the girl with a bit of impatience,
stretching out her hand.
Yang passed his phone as
quickly as he could, wondering what she would do.
Putting the cell phone on
the table near her, the girl took out one of her own and began to dial a
“Hello, is it Wen? I’m
lily. How are you?” the girl spoke to Wen on the phone, simpering.
Wen had been a special
closest and best friend of Yang’s since their childhood. They often got
together doing things they desired to. At this moment, Yang was puzzled
about why his girlfriend would call his best friend unexpectedly.
“Lily! I’m fine. How about
you? Is there anything I can help you with?” Wen answered.
“Wen, I’m looking for Yang
for an important matter. Is he with you?” Lily asked.
“Yes, of course! We are
presently talking over some business. Hold on please, he is in the
bathroom now I’ll ask him to come out.” Wen replied and pretended to shout
loudly, “Hey! Yang, Lily wants to speak to you____.” After a brief
silence, the voice continued, “Lily, I’m so sorry that he still needs 5
more minutes. Or, I’ll tell him to call you back when he comes out.”
“Ok, please ask Yang to
call me back when he comes out of the bathroom. Thank you, Wen.” Lily
smiled simperingly all the time when having the phone conversation with
Sitting face to face with
her, Yang started sweating on his forehead. 10 seconds later, Yang’s cell
phone on the table suddenly rang. Yang sweated more and more droplets
flowing down his face. Lily happily watched Yang’s embarrassment and
pressed the answer key.
A voice of Wen came out
from Yang’s cell phone: “Yang, Yang, it is good you have turned on the
cell phone, where have you been? Lily just called me to look for you. I
lied to her that you were in the bathroom of my house. How is that? That
is what a best friend is for. You’d better be in a hurry to call Lily
back, don’t forget to say you are still in my house ___.”
